LET THEM EAT ROCKS - (Houseless get rocks tossed at them)
Mood:  crushed out
Now Playing: "Storm The Bastille, with calls and pickets"
Topic: Houseless
We must fight this with all our might, "Storm The Bastille, with calls and pickets."


 

A few days ago I got an email about Oregon’s Department of Transportation delivering large rocks to an area in the Lents neighborhood. This was a place where people, human beings, set up a camp under the 405 Freeway. The solution is the s...ame as Marie Antoinette came up with when she remarked that let the people eat the crumbs from the bread, or as the more common use of the legend is, “Let them eat cake.” ODOT goes one better by saying, “Let them eat rocks.”

I want to get to a place where I am calm, logical, and persuasive, but these jackasses just will not let me do it. Every time I feel calm and happy that the world is good, some idiot from the city, county or now this new entry into stupidity does something that sends me into the overhead and I want to scream; and I will---very loudly.

 We must attack this shit straight on, I have sent e-mails to the city and county, I have made some phone calls and will make some more on Monday to everyone I can think of up to and including that guy in Salem we call our governor. People, unless you make this a big issue, then you can expect this kind of shit everywhere. ODOT thinks they got the answer to homelessness, well let’s show them that the homeless/houseless may be vulnerable but we who live inside will not let this stand. I will ask you to pass this on, let’s get together and do something that will knock their socks off.

 Let’s call for the first meeting at City Hall this Wednesday, 10/30/2013 and meet at the food carts, get some lunch and take over the courtyard. I got a few bucks, “want to take a ride?” Individuals For Justice will be there for the council meeting and when we come out during lunch it would be good to see lots of homeless there to meet and decide on a date and action against the Lents Neighborhood Association and ODOT. I know there is a meeting tomorrow, 10/28/2013 at City Hall and we will attend that one. The Musketeers had a saying, All for one, one for all; we are in this together and fight we must.
Meetings:
Monday---3:00 PM at City Hall—Michael Withey—Six Points and more
Wednesday 0930 for Council meeting—Individuals For Justice
1100 for lunch meeting – Individuals For Justice, start to coordinate actions against ODOT & Lents Neighborhood Association and the city. Please get this out to your list and let us show that we who care about others will fight these greedy, short sighted jerks.
